BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Cellular decay due hypoxia requires rapid and validated methods for possible therapeutic cell transplantation. PURPOSE: To develop direct and rapid superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) cell label for a large-animal model and to assess in vivo cell targeting by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in an experimental AMI model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNCs) were labeled with SPIO particles using two novel direct labeling methods (rotating incubation method and electroporation)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Olaparib, rucaparib and niraparib, potent inhibitors of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) have recently been approved for human use for oncological indications. Considering the previously demonstrated role of PARP in various forms of acute and chronic myocardial injury, we tested the effect of olaparib in in-vitro models of oxidative stress in cardiomyocytes, and in an in-vivo model of cardiac transplantation. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: H9c2-embryonic rat heart-derived myoblasts pretreated with vehicle or olaparib (10μM) were challenged with either hydrogen-peroxide (H2 O2 ) or with glucose-oxidase (GOx, which generates H2 O2 in the tissue culture medium)...

Despite great progress in engineering functional tissues for organ repair, including the heart, an invasive surgical approach is still required for their implantation. Here, we designed an elastic and microfabricated scaffold using a biodegradable polymer (poly(octamethylene maleate (anhydride) citrate)) for functional tissue delivery via injection. The scaffold's shape memory was due to the microfabricated lattice design. Scaffolds and cardiac patches (1 cm × 1 cm) were delivered through an orifice as small as 1 mm, recovering their initial shape following injection without affecting cardiomyocyte viability and function...

Natural products with antioxidative activities are widely applied to prevent and treat various oxidative stress related diseases, including ischemic heart disease. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms of those therapies are still needed to be illustrated. In this study, we characterized the cardioprotective effects of Hongjingtian Injection (HJT), an extensively used botanical drug for treating coronary heart disease. The H/R-induced profound elevation of oxidative stress was suppressed by HJT. HJT also attenuates oxidative injury by promoting cell viability, intracellular ATP contents, and mitochondrial oxygen consumption...

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), extracted from propolis, was proven to inhibit colon cancer. Caffeic acid p-nitro-phenethyl ester (CAPE-pNO2), a derivative of CAPE, was determined to be an anti-platelet agent and a protector of myocardial ischaemia with more potent effects. In the present study, CAPE-pNO2 showed stronger cytotoxic activity than CAPE. We revealed interactions between CAPE-pNO2 and experimental cells. CAPE-pNO2 induced apoptosis in HT-29 cells by up-regulating P53, cleaved-caspase-3, Bax, P38 and CytoC; CAPE-pNO2 also up-regulated P21(Cip1) and P27(Kip1) and down-regulated CDK2 and c-Myc to promote cell cycle arrest in G0/G1...

Rooibos, an indigenous South African plant ingested as herbal tea, is well known for its antioxidant effects. This in vitro study investigated aspalathin (C21H24O11), a dihydrochalcone unique to rooibos, for hypoglycemic effects in the context of age- and obesity-induced insulin resistance and the mechanisms involved. Male Wistar rats were allocated into three groups: 16 - 30 weeks feeding with either standard rat chow or a high-caloric diet, or 6 - 10 weeks feeding with standard rat chow. Ventricular cardiomyocytes were isolated by collagenase perfusion digestion, and glucose uptake was determined by 2-[(3)H]-deoxyglucose accumulation...

Although the mechanism remains unclear, ischemic post‑conditioning (IPO) is a promising approach to combat myocardial ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury; however, it has been proven ineffective in diabetes. The present study aimed to identify whether hyperglycemia‑induced AMP‑activated protein kinase (AMPK) inhibition contributes to the ineffectiveness of IPO via autophagy attenuation in diabetic hearts. Diabetic and non‑diabetic rats were subjected to myocardial IR and/or IPO with/without treatment with the AMPK activator A‑769662 and/or autophagy inhibitor 3‑methyladenine (3‑MA)...

Previous studies have shown a role of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in innate immunity. However, the specific role of mtDNA in acute myocardial infarction remains elusive. This study was designed to examine the damaging effect of mtDNA on cardiomyocytes. H9c2s cells were incubated with purified mtDNA or nuclear DNA with or without pretreatment by chloroquine, an inhibitor of Toll-like receptor 9(TLR9). The cell viability was tested by MTT. To demonstrate the toxicity of mtDNA, mtDNA fragments were injected into rats 10 min before ischemia for 30 min and reperfusion for 24 h...

Rationale: Cardiac myocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells have demonstrated the potential to mitigate damage of the infarcted myocardium and improve left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). However, the mechanism underlying the functional benefit is unclear. Objective: To evaluate whether the transplantation of cardiac lineage differentiated derivatives enhance myocardial viability and restore LVEF more effectively than undifferentiated pluripotent stem cells after a myocardial injury (MI). Herein, we utilize novel multimodality evaluation of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), hESC-derived cardiac myocytes (hCMs), human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and iPSC-derived cardiac myocytes (iCMs) in a murine MI model...

Despite major advances, ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) remains a significant cause of death and disability worldwide, with coronary artery disease (CAD) the leading cause of left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction. Coronary revascularization may improve LV function, heart failure symptoms and cardiovascular outcomes in high-risk patients with myocardial viability. Multiple imaging modalities have been utilized to detect viable myocardium and predict functional recovery following revascularization. Dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE), nuclear imaging and cardiac MRI (CMR) are frequently used to assess viability...

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) occurs when blood supply to the heart is diminished (ischemia) for long time, and ischemia is primarily caused due to hypoxia. This study evaluated the effects of long non-coding RNA maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3) on hypoxic rat cardiomyocyte-drived H9c2 cells. Hypoxic injury was confirmed by alterations of cell viability, migration, invasion, apoptosis and hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) expression. MEG3 level in hypoxic cells and effects of its knockdown on hypoxic cells were assessed...
